This form will serve as entry for the KCKPS speech contest. Each entrant will have 3 to 5 minutes to respond to this prompt: USD 500 students have faced many tragedies in the last year. Specifically student deaths related to gun violence and suicide have taken more than 20 KCKPS students. What could or should we, Wyandotte County citizens do to address the trauma and underlying causes of this violence? Your speech should offer steps to address and prevent these lives from being lost. For more reference around the initiative, visit kckps.org and go to enough.KCKPS.org.
